Gable End Conservatory with privacy wall

November 2017 Customer of the Month Case Study – Gable End Conservatory, Caerphilly

Winter may be upon us, but it’s still an ideal time to upgrade your home with one of our excellent DIY conservatories.

So, we’re thrilled to announce that we have another deeply satisfied customer of the month to tell you about.

Mr John Gwilliam installed his very own DIY gable end conservatory to his Caerphilly home and couldn’t be happier with his purchase.

One of the key aspects Mr Gwilliam wanted from his new gable conservatory was to include a full-height wall on one of the sides for extra privacy.

Here is how his house looked like prior to installing conservatory:

He also opted to upgrade to the 35mm Polycarbonate option for ultimate heat retention – just in time for the colder months.

We have to say, he certainly did an excellent job.

In fact, he found it so simple to build his gable end extension, that he recommended us to both his nephew and daughter.

Prior to manufacturing the parts, we completed a few computer-aided drawings to give Mr Gwilliam the best possible idea of what the finished product would look like.

You can see the drawings below:

The Project Technical Specifications

In addition to the 35mm Polycarbonate roof panels, he also requested to use Pilkington K Glass on the windows to maintain usability all year round.

The 3000mm x 4000mm dimensions were also made to measure to the customer’s requirements.

The Installation Process

In order to construct his gable end conservatory without the help of a builder, Mr Gwilliam required the ConservaBase steel foundation to give himself a solid base to build upon.

The Gable end feature was also straightforward to achieve – whilst the higher wall on one side was a clever extra touch.

That should prevent overlooking neighbours from seeing into the conservatory from afar, keeping that all-important element of privacy.

Despite these upgrades however, the conservatory was extremely easy to build with no notable restrictions to overcome.

Customer Testimonial

Mr Gwilliam commented: “A top quality conservatory, really good value for money and saved us around £12,000 compared to other competitors. A lovely addition to our house.
